### What is Meant by the Mean Absolute Deviation?

In statistics, the Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD) of the given data set value is defined as the average deviation between the mean and the data value. It describes the variation in the given data values. The procedure to find the mean absolute deviation is given below:

• Calculate the mean of the given data
• Determine the difference between each data value and the mean
• Now, take the absolute value of each obtained difference
• Finally, find the mean of these differences
